it must be the water

Or the heat. You decide.

I can understand if Canada’s Dakota people didn’t celebrate Canada Day this year after the government offered them a deal to buy out their treaty and aboriginal rights. They turned it down without hesitation and rightly so.

According to a government e-mail, the Dakota First Nations in Canada are American Indians who signed treaties in the United States. This is a serious insult to the Dakota who claim that they chose to live in Canada much like the United Empire Loyalists or the Mohawks of Tyendinaga.

I can think of a lot of other people that Canada might want to get rid of first. Um, like that Federal bureaucrat for one…
